The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to providing resources to women in engineering, outreach to young girls interested in engineering, and increasing representation of women in STEM fields overall. SWE hosts a national conference annually, consisting of a career fair, research competition, and talks relevant to women in engineering.
The Caltech chapter of SWE aims to provide a support network to Caltech women integrated with national SWE. Our mission includes the following:
1. To coordinate mentorship opportunities between freshmen and upperclassmen, and provide a support network for women in engineering options
2. To provide networking opportunities outside of Caltech for members interested in industry or academia
3. To perform outreach activities for local girls in middle and high school and increase interest in STEM among women
